A 3.5-mile trail parallels the east bank of the Hackensack River from its southern terminus at Terhune Park north to Brett Park. A few hundred feet away is a Revolutionary War site -- Historic New Bridge Landing, also the location of the Steuben House. Much of the pathway is along the river, and Indian Pond at Andreas Park is a particularly beautiful spot for viewing wading birds. But several sections have yet to be completed requiring the use of local streets.
